Andrew Wyatt joins Westminster Presbyterian as new minister

Published 8:29 am Friday, January 31, 2020

Rev. Andrew Wyatt has joined Westminster Presbyterian Church in Johnson City as its new senior pastor.
Wyatt was called by Westminster into this new role after he served five years as mid-adults pastor at First Presbyterian Church in Macon, Ga. In that role, Wyatt led the outreach Sunday evening service, pastoral counseling, visitation, fellowship, and discipleship for mid-adults, Christian education, small group ministry, children’s ministry, men’s retreat leadership, and Sunday School teaching.
Prior to his work in Macon, Wyatt was pastor to youth and families at Christ Church in Trussville, Ala., a new church being planted in that community. He also served as pastoral intern with Christ Covenant Church in Matthews, N.C., and worked as youth director to high school students at Briarwood Presbyterian Church in Birmingham, Ala.
“I’m honored to have been called to lead and serve this congregation,” Wyatt said. “Westminster has a strong church community, a firm theology based on the Bible, a heart for missions, and a keen desire to follow Jesus Christ. We welcome visitors to join us as we worship the Triune God together and share our lives with one another.”
A native of Nashville, Wyatt holds a bachelor’s degree in political science from the University of Tennessee, Knoxville, where he served as campus minister in “The Cross” ministry to fraternity/sorority students and led mission trips for disaster relief in Mississippi following Hurricane Katrina. He also has a master’s of divinity degree from Reformed Theological Seminary in Charlotte, N.C., and is currently completing his doctor of ministry degree from there as well. He and his wife, Lauren, have two sons.
Wyatt was officially installed at Westminster on Jan. 5 as part of a special service led by church elders and several pastors, including Rev. Paul Hahn, Wyatt’s former pastor and now the coordinator of Mission to North America (MNA), a church-planting agency of the Presbyterian Church in America (PCA) denomination. Wyatt was called by Westminster following a year-long pastoral search to fill the vacancy left by Dr. James E. Richter who retired after 16 years as senior pastor.
Westminster Presbyterian Church is a member of the PCA denomination. For more information about Westminster, go to or call (423) 283-4643. The church is located at 2343 Knob Creek Road in Johnson City.
